The Joe Green Tree Project got a new addition Saturday.

Named after the composer, Guiseppi Verdi, the project is meant to remember those who've made significant contributions to the area.

Today's tree was dedicated the late Bruce Brenner and planted on the campus of Virginia Western  Community Colleges.

Brenner was a former board member at the college and a contributor to Opera Roanoke.

Each year, since the project started, a new tree has been planted.

Williamson says this project is a way Opera Roanoke can get more involved in the community.
